The Cosy Intimacy of a Smaller Art Venue

If I did not have a prior commitment tonight, I would certainly have gone to Mudlarks Cafe in Hertford to listen to the fabulous duo The Goldbacks.  C’est la vie as they say.  Shame we cannot be in more than one place at once especially at this busy time of year. 


It has definitely been a busy time for me over the past couple of weeks with one thing or another and with Christmas just around the corner.  Selecting sixteen paintings for the Mudlarks Show took up lots of time.  Knowing that the venue was a cosy and quirky hub of activity with all ages frequenting at different times of the day, I wanted to keep the collection fun, contemporary and eclectic.  So hopefully there is something for all to enjoy. 


Me straight after hanging the paintings.  
Thanks to David Holliday, my close friend and Chairman of Mudlarks and my hubby David Moore for helping me with the display. 

Who knows maybe the crowd listening to The Goldbacks tonight may even appreciate my Flavours painting.  A bottle of wine, some blues and soul music and there we have it.  A perfect evening perhaps.
